Bastardo Inks One-Year Deal with Phillies

Bastardo had his ups and downs in 2012.

The Phillies and Antonio Bastardo came to an agreement on a one-year, $1.4 million deal, avoiding arbitration. He was the last remaining player on the roster that was arbitration eligible. It was Bastardo’s first year eligible.

The 27-year old had a rough year in 2012, even though he struck out 81 batters in 52 innings. His 4.33 ERA in 65 appearances last season was well above his 2.64 ERA from 2011, when he burst onto the scene as one of the best relievers in all of baseball in the first half.
